Enel Green Power has kicked off the construction of a photovoltaic system in the municipality of Trino in the province of Vercelli (Piedmont) in Italy. The photovoltaic power facility is to be built on an area of approximately 130 hectares adjacent to the former ‘Galileo Ferraris’ power plant, and will consist of nearly 160,000 modules, with a capacity of 86 MW. A 25 MW electrochemical energy storage system will also be installed, which will help to ensure the proper functioning of the electricity system, also providing ancillary services to the grid. It will be one of the largest solar power plants in Northern Italy. Once fully operational, it will be able to produce approximately 130 GWh each year, making it possible to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by about 56,000 tons and to cut down on gas consumption by 29 million cubic meters, replacing it with locally produced renewable energy. In addition to the photovoltaic system, the project entails other initiatives to the benefit of the local area, made possible by entering into dialogue with the local community and always with sustainability in mind. Specifically, these include architectural and functional restoration work on several buildings in the town of Leri Cavour, in the area adjacent to the photovoltaic system, and restoration work on a section of the historic road linking the hamlets of Leri Cavour and Cascina Colombara.
